Iron nail. Wrought iron nail or stud with a large possibly facetted lightly concavo-convex square head, and with a tapered rectangular-section wedge-shaped shank. This would be apt to the reinforcing of a door, a usage recorded archaeologically in the region from the 1680s (at the Hull Citadel - Foreman, M. and Goodhand, S. 1996, 'The Construction of Hull Citadel', in Post-Medieval Archaeology vol. 30, 143-185, page 169, fig. 13, ), and no doubt of long standing then. The good preservation of metal suggested by its mass may suggest a post-medieval date, and the object was perhaps only …

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete iron single looped buckle. The buckle is sub-rectangular (or similar to D-shaped form) with three relatively straight sides (one of which is the axis bar) and a final edge that is curved. The two short straight edges are not quite parallel such that the buckle is narrower at the axis bar (c, 40.9mm) than near the long curved edge (48.1mm). The frame is oval in cross section although this is irregular due to corrosion. The buckle is a mottled dark brown colour with some orange iron staining around its surface which is now corroded and irregular. The buckle is 48.1mm long, 36…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Darlington
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete iron knife, probably dating to the eighth to tenth centuries AD. It possesses a short rectangular-sectioned whittle tang, which is broken at the end. The other end steps out from both sides at the shoulder to a wide triangular-sectioned blade. The cutting edge is straight, the back edge curving outwards before kinking in towards a break. There is a fuller on one side only. On the fuller side, parallel diagonal lines can be seen. Those above and below the fuller go in alternate directions. It is likely that these lines result from the blade being manufactured from twisted …

An incomplete iron object, possibly the leg of a large staple of uncertain date. The object comprises a square-section spike which tapers to a point at one end and is slightly twisted along its length.

A near complete joiner's dog or cleat of uncertain date. The cleat has a rectangular-section body which is oval in plan. It tapers to square-sectioned legs at each end. One leg is broken, the other is heavily twisted, with the twisting extending to the body plate. Whilst smaller versions of this type of fitting may have been used to reinforce the soles of shoes, examples such as this must have a had role in structural capentry. This objects has been twisted around one of the legs, most likely indicating damage caused during extraction from a substantial timber. The cleat measures 89mm …

The tang joins the centre of a triangular-sectioned blade with sharp shoulders. The front and rear edges are parallel, before the cutting edge curves to meet the back at a sharp tip.

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete iron unidentified object of a Post Medieval or Modern date (c. AD 1600-2050). The object consists of an iron bar, rectangular in section, with an integral loop in the centre through which a single link of iron chain loops through, which has bent out of shape most likely due to post depositional factors. It is likely that there would have been a series of iron chain links and that this bar would have been suspended by this means. It's unclear exactly what this object is due to the lack of diagnostic features and also presence of heavy corrosion. It may have functioned as …

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire

Iron possible weight. Cast heater shield-shaped weight, with slight loss of fabric to the flaking of corrosion at the arises or angles, otherwise in good condition. The mass may suggest this to have represented one half of an averdepois pound, though the manufacture of such an object in iron seems perversely difficult. Some iron implement teeth from agricultural machinery might also acquire such a form through wear, though there is no sign of this having broken from a larger object or setting. Suggested date: Late Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1450-1600 Height: 67.7mm, Width: 53.1mm, Thi…

An iron unidentified object of unknown date, AD 43 - 1950. In form, it is a long, narrow scoop, concave on one face and convex on the other. At one end the tops of the walls extend into a flat plate with broken edges. The other end also has broken edges but appears to have been rounded.It could be a specialised spoon or seed drill scoop, or perhaps a handle or leaver. It is 87.1mm long, 25.1mm wide and 11.9mm thick. 35.2g. It is similar in form to Roman cosmetic mortars, but is larger. It is recorded because it was found about 20m from the coin hoard SWYOR-A99131, and in the same vici…

Object type: BRIDLE BIT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete iron bridle bit dating to the Medieval period (c. AD 1150-1450). The bit consists of a single shaft, with an integral central loop, and either side one terminal fanning out and the other terminal broken. The form of the bit is similar to one recognised by Ward Perkins (Museum of London 1940, 80-82 type B), as part of the 'snaffle'. This would have linked the bit to the headstall and reins by which the rider controls the horse (Clark et al, 1995). The metal has a reddish-brown colour. The bridle bit is 102.9mm long, 11.4mm wide and 6.2mm thick. The diameter of the centra…

An incomplete Box Iron or slug iron of Post Medieval date (c. AD 1700-1900). The iron consists of a triangular shaped, solid brick of iron known as the 'slug'. The tip of the triangle has been squared off. This brick would have been heated in the fire and placed into a hollow ironing box, in order to keep the iron hot for longer, as opposed to the earlier simple 'flat irons'. This is a variation on earlier Box Irons, which were typically filled with charcoal in order to keep them hot. The development of the 'slug', allowed the ironing surface to be kept away from the charcoal and thus …
